Intellectual Property Practice

Intellectual Property Practice examines contemporary issues such as social networking, game platforms and development, plagiarism, entrepreneurship, licensing, user generated content, publishing, creative collaboration, website terms of use, and cultural institutions, and how these issues are intertwined with trademark (including trade dress), copyright, right of publicity, right of privacy, and trade secret. Students will examine real life cases, prepare/file applications to register copyrights and trademarks, draft plagiarism policies, advise start-up companies on intellectual property strategy, structure license agreements, make presentations to the class, and engage in practical activities that help to develop and solidify the students' understanding of intellectual property law. To further develop leadership skills, small student groups will prepare in advance and deliver class presentations on certain topics. The final exam is a final project that integrates the law and practice.
